I’ve always loved prints and, posters and sticking things up on my walls. From Kerrang! magazine posters to quirky prints from Urban Outfitters and IKEA now, I just love how they can change a room’s look and feel. I even painted Alexisonfire lyrics on my walls when I was 13, (sorry Mum), but I just love a bit of art, don’t I? On this note, we finally got around to doing something with our bedroom and giving it the same TLC that we’ve given the (only other) room in our flat, the kitchen/diner.
House hunting is one of those adulting things that we’re all trying to do. Saving all the moneys, trying to get on the property ladder and house hunting are all part of the same game and it can be super stressful. We’re currently trying to do this exact fun task and I’m learning loads along the way. Here are 4 things that I think I’ve learnt and wanted to share with you guys!
Furniture is a huge piece of the puzzle when it comes to getting your interiors perfect. Not only is furniture a practical necessity (obv), but it’s a huge part of your style picture. If the furniture in a room isn’t working, then it’s impossible for the room to look its best. When trying to find that missing piece of the puzzle, it can be easy to throw yourself headfirst into a furniture search. Flicking through the gorgeous interiors Instagram accounts is my first port of call! That’s the easy part. Here are three of the most common mistakes that we all make when buying furniture. If you can cut these out of your shopping experience, you can be sure the result will be a room that is just how you want it.
Autumn is officially here, rejoice with the leaf emojis, hot chocolates and Christmas lists. Yes. Here are 4 basic bish things that I love about autumn.
1. Buying and wearing knitwear
You might have caught my fave new knit over on Instagram that came from my 9 fave AW season knitwear pics post. The ASOS babe that has the perfect slouch, a lovely high neck and a cosy autumnal colour. Knitwear, jumpers, sweater weather, whatever you want to call it, buying and wearing cosy pieces are one of the best things about autumn. I haven’t yet got all of my really thick knits out of storage yet but I tell ya, it’s coming soon.
When you’ve lived somewhere for a while, like anything that sticks around for longer than 5 minutes, there is the tendency to become a bit bored with it. But, unless you’re cu-razy rich it’s probably not on the cards to up and move every time you get bored with your home and interiors.
As if it’s September? It’s basically autumn and summer is well and truly behind us. Well, I hope the weather realises so anyway because I always get so confused this time of year about what to wear. The day will start out freezing and you’ll be sweating by lunchtime. Nightmare. Anyway, seeing as it’s a whole new month I thought I’d share some items I’m lusting over for the new season.
I never thought I’d be the type of girl to crave a ‘dressing table’ or somewhere to lay all my makeup out but after not having one forever I’m definitely wanting one at the moment! I think once we’re finally settled in a ‘proper house’ it’ll be high up on my list of priorities for our bedroom.
There are so many things I love when it comes to interiors, decor and home ware in general. One of the things that tends to catch my eye the most though is flooring, which I believe is the very foundation to any house (literally!). Flooring can set the tone for a whole room, when paired with different furnishings it can bring so many features out to play. With that in mind I have decided to chat about a couple of my fave floors with you, some old, some new but all just lovely!
For most people, their home is their haven. Somewhere they can relax when things get them down. At home, you can truly relax, be yourself and do what you want, when you want, right? Totally.
Looking after your home is really important. It is an investment in yourself and can have a huge impact on your general well-being. The way you decorate can be particularly important. It has a big impact on the feeling of each room. Let’s look at how to decorate in a way that creates a feel-good ambience that will help you to relax and recharge your batteries.
